2071  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: My kid wants to play Pokemon - Where does he start? on: October 17, 2010, 12:19:59 PM
Thanks a ton, guys!
We've got a DS that plays GBA games, so it doesn't matter either way. He's also not picky about graphics. He's played through the Mario Galaxy games, Loved Metroid Zero Mission, and is now playing Super Mario World.
He can get by with just one game, right? It seems like they always seem to be released in pairs. Why is that?

Ok, so he sees some other kids at school playing with Pokemon cards and decides he wants some. Fine.
I thought I would get him one of the video games, too, but there are so many.
Where should someone who is new to Pokemon start?

You guys mentioning Bill Cosby are spot on. His stuff about parenting is damn funny because it's so true.

OK, so NOW I'm done with Other M. Played for about 15 hours. Epilogue included
Code:
Took me numerous tries to beat that giant...whatever it was. And all that was just for a freakin' helmet?! Samus = softy
My item % was only 41%! Ugh. I would actually continue on to see how high I could get that # if I didn't have other games I want to play.

Carlin is/was awesome. His humor is just as relevant today as it ever was. Especially his religious diatribes.
I like Lewis Black, but the "yelling all the time" shtick is getting a bit old.
Steven Wright  is great.
Seinfeld is still doing his thing, and totally funny.
I don't normally like people who do impressions, but that one dude is awesome. Hmm, what's his name?
*searches the googleweb*
Frank Caliendo! He's funny. And damn talented.

Metroid: Other M is finished(sort if). I may mess around a bit to see what I can find.
I actually really liked it, despite some major flaws. I was fine with Samus, but everyone and everything else I didn't like so much. The story really got ridiculous at the end there.
While the environmental sounds/music were OK, I still wish it had a "real" soundtrack.
The gameplay was pretty darn good, and most of the boss battles were well done.

I'll probably start up Bayonetta and play that until I get LoS for my birthday.

BTW, my son finished Zero Mission. He loved it. I'll get him playing some of the other Metroid games, but for now he wants to play Super Mario World. I'll DL it on the Wii, assuming it's available.

Fable I was just OK.
Fable II was a ton better, with a great battle system. I had a lot of fun with it, despite the horrible ending and obnoxious npcs.
Despite all the hype(there's that word again) over fallout 3 around here I have yet to play it. Looks complicated and depressing.
Personally, I'm not getting either one anytime soon. Too many other games to play still.

Climbed a mountain and saw three waterfalls in the Sumatran rainforest yesterday. Good times.
With this, you win the thread.
pics?

Other M - I fought the super secret boss
Code:
Ridley!
in the vicinity of 20 times. It just moves so damn fast that it took me awhile to figure it all out. I finally beat it, and am now...um...somewhere else.

I like this game, but damn do I want to play LoS. 19 days til my birthday. I'll be alright.


2080  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Why isn't the DS getting more RPGs on: October 08, 2010, 09:49:53 AM
you all are ripping on my main guy Thoren. Is this just?

...huh?
I don't even think he's been mentioned a good number of posts.
Aside from touching himself - but I believe we're all liable to that, and therefore, if Prime is correct, we are all responsible for lack of RPGs on any console.

...and dead kittens.

2081  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Alundra and Arc the Lad coming to PSN on 10.12.2010 on: October 08, 2010, 09:46:00 AM
I played Alundra briefly back when it came out. I don't remember why, but it didn't work for me.
I've always wanted to play the Arc games. Hmmm...
2082  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Pat's editorial - I Don't Have The Patience For This! (Anymore) on: October 07, 2010, 06:57:32 PM
I played it when it came out on the SNES.  That shouldn't be unusual, I think it sold pretty well.  And I've always seen emulators as a pretty fringe thing.
Same here. I really don't get the emulator comment. I thought pretty much everyone who wanted to play it, played it on the SNES. Then there was the PS release. Then the more recent DS release. Interesting.
Terranigma, on the other hand...
2083  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: October 07, 2010, 09:29:11 AM
Other M:
I made it to this totally top secret boss type creature that you would never guess would be in a Metroid game.
Code:
Ridley!
I fought it 5 or 6 times, getting my ass kicked handily each time. Ouch.


2084  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Pat's editorial - I Don't Have The Patience For This! (Anymore) on: October 06, 2010, 05:15:56 PM
That's one thing I like about the PSP- I can hook it up to my HDTV and play on the big screen. 
Which means I HAVE to get one to play all the damn Ys games coming out! augh!
2085  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Finished Games. on: October 06, 2010, 01:35:02 PM
I suffer from a severe case of collectoritis.  I don't sell or trade in anything.  I even keep games I hated...

Way back in the day when I was much younger and strapped for cash I sold some of my Super Nintendo games (some really good ones, like Final Fantasy III and Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past) and I have never forgiven myself.  Seriously, it haunts me to this day.
Same here. I don't sell/trade anything. Just like you, I sold a few games back in the day(Panzer Dragoon Saga!) that I now regret selling.
